“This is an oldie and will soon be your FAVORITE DESSERT”
There’s nothing fancy or complicated about Pineapple Dessert, but that’s part of the beauty of it! Juicy pineapple, fresh whipped cream, and sweet wafer cookies make up the majority of this light and refreshing treat. Give this retro dessert a try, and it’s sure to be a new family favorite!
- 1 ~12 oz box vanilla wafers
- 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple, drained
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 heaping cup sugar
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 stick butter melted
Crush the wafers into small pieces. I usually do this by placing the cookies in a ziplock bag, sealing it, then hitting it lightly with my rolling pin.
Reserve 1/2 cup of the wafer pieces to use later, and put the remaining wafer pieces on the bottom of a baking dish. (My mom always used a 9×13” pan, but we thought we’d try out a slightly smaller pan this time. Any pan will do!)
Next, beat together the sugar, beaten eggs, and melted butter until well mixed. Then pour the mixture over the top of the wafers in your baking pan.
The next thing you’ll add is the crushed pineapple. (You want to make sure that the pineapple is drained thoroughly before adding it in, because a lot of extra moisture will make this dessert soggy.) Spread the crushed pineapple in an even layer.
Whip your cream until it forms stiff peaks, then spread the whipped cream over the pineapple layer.
Finally, sprinkle the reserved wafers over the top of the whipped cream layer.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, then serve and enjoy!
